Are the sisters Annie, Catherine, Agnes and Audrey, all born Manchester North, 1927 to 1931?
(They have the Jones/Ford birth combination)

Tracey, I know all this is very exciting and it must sound really boring of me, but you need to pace yourself a bit! The best advice anyone will give you is start with some hard facts for which you have concrete evidence. Unless you have very unusual names this will mean getting the occasional birth, marriage or death cert. Believe me, you will regret it if you don't back up speculation with facts and end up with the wrong family.

Certs can be bought online from the GRO:

http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/

They cost £9.25.

The entry provided by Joseph looks right doesn't it, provided you are 100% certain the name you are after is Ford. It gives you everything you need to order a cert.

Long Shot

Marriages Jun 1927
JONES Richard E Ford Manchester N. 8d 1254
FORD Annie Jones Manchester N 8d 1254

No Ryan

Could have married in Scotland.

You could spend a fortune on certificates and be no nearer than now!!!

This is a record of The Army Service Corp in WW1

http://www.1914-1918.net/asc.htm

Now ive looked to see if his Pension or Service records have survived which may have given more info where he served, alas it looks like his have not survived, but 70% of these records were destroyed in WW2, so not surprising.

Why can't you get the cert? I can't see a marriage on the indexes.
Maybe you can tell us the name of the child born 1927 and where this was? That way we can hopefully check mother's maiden name.

Do you know who your great grandad married please? As Jan says it would be best to get a marriage certificate.

is it possible to find out where he served in the army all i know is he was in france

brummiejan Report 27 Jan 2013 15:45

Tracey, you need to be a bit careful as the name is so common. It would be really easy to follow the wrong path.
I really think you should get his marriage cert.
